The UK-based division has more than 250 employees.
PlayStation announced they decided to acquire another studio, UK-based Firesprite. The team is known for working on the PSVR horror shooter The Persistence. They also contributed to the development of Sony's The Playroom titles.
The studio now has more than 250 employees which makes it larger than the other two UK PlayStation teams, London Studio and Media Molecule, combined. Another thing to note is that the team was originally launched by the members of Sony's Liverpool studio (the Wipeout franchise).
"It feels great to work with people that go as far back as Wipeout... the entire leadership team we have worked with in the past. Graeme Ankers, Stuart Tilley, Dr Lovegrove... I've worked directly with them on projects, on Killzone 2. That legacy of the old Studio Liverpool with Formula 1... it's a really great feeling to welcome them back to the family," said Hermen Hulst, head of PlayStation Studios.
